Five Uses For Your Wood Burning Ashes

Tips For Wood Burning Ashes
When you first get a woodburner, the obvious things to do with the ashes is to put them straight into the bin (though never while hot, as the old-style dustbins used to remind us). However, there are actually many more useful things that you could use those ashes for than waiting for them to cool and throwing them out.
The dusty by-product of burning wood can actually be a very useful accessory around the home and garden, helping you with various cleaning and gardening tasks. Here are five examples of ways in which you might like to put your ashes to better use:
1. On your garden
